The very figure of prosperous and abundance, Hotei (Chinese: Mi Li), the happy Buddha, with his attributes of staff and sack, wandering the countryside, dispensing riches and caring for children. The work exemplifying Meiji aesthetics and balance of elements, contrasting areas of massive volume with details and angular edges that embellish and punctuate the circular forms.

Also Known as the Laughing Buddha. Here the corpulent face of Hotei offers an affable smile. Tied to his upraised staff, his full sack is as large as his belly. This bronze figure is finished with a tinted copper with aged natural patina. The presence of Hotei in a home is an ancient promise of abundance and well-being.
